Header: Some Problems But Worth It

i don't know what your preferance is, but this printer is a pretty nice piece of machinery. especially for the price. although i frequently have to reload the DVD tray, the fact is there IS a DVD tray. it does tend to be quite annoying sometimes, but it is straight up difficult to find printers with this type of accessory. if you look in the stores, you will notice the same thing. (depending on where you live)
the only other problem is trying to find discs to use on here. i accidentally bought thermal printable discs which don't work with this type of ink. it just turns into ink beads. i have been using verbatim inkjet printable dvd-r discs and those have been the best for use in this printer. make sure you get inkjet printable, that is a must. i wouldn't recommend memorex printable dvd-r discs because they have quite an ugly label of memorex written right in the center of the disc.
there is also a handly little tool (software that comes with the printer) that allows you to center your own pictures onto the disc. it took a little bit of tweeking, but now i have professional looking dvds.
the only thing i recommend is to put a layer of clear coat over the top of the discs due to the fact the ink WILL run if water touches the surface. i have been using matte finish (basically flat clear coat) and it looks just like it did without the clear coat. i just don't have to worry about the discs running when water touches them. also don't forget to mask the bottom of the discs when you do this (the discs tend to lift up and a little bit of overspray hits the recordable side if you are using spray.) i don't know if other inks work this way, but the stuff in the R220 just happens to be water-based.

I wanted a CD label printer so I looked at the Casio label printer but the reviews were so bad so I bought the Epson R220 just to print on Cds. My first attempts came out perfect. The "Epson Print CD" software is very good. It gives you many options to work with text and images. I'll just be using the R220 for CD printing so I won't be using a lot of ink. I have a Epson C82 that been working fine for a couple of years and that will still be used as the primary printer.
